The Albemarle difference: reliable, high-quality global supply.

With leading global positions in lithium and bromine, Albemarle believes where and how we produce essential elements is just as important as how much we produce.  

Critically important and high-growth industries – from automotive EVs to electronics, fire and food safety – require quality supply when and where they need it. Geographic diversity of our resources and production facilities provide products closer to customers and align to regional and national regulatory requirements.

Albemarle’s commitment to sustainability, transparency and ethical ways of operating, is not only the responsible approach, but one which enhances the ultimate value of our customers’ offerings.

A Culture of Safety

At Albemarle we take safety seriously, at every level of the organization – from the Board of Directors to the field, the lab and the plant floor. And while both lithium and bromine are naturally occurring elements that are essential for life, they are also powerful minerals that require the specialized and experienced handling which Albemarle provides.
